    Soviet Union 1970 Visit: Neil Armstrong (and Others) Signed COSPAR XIII Conference Cover Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, Certified and Encapsulated by Collectibles Authentication Guaranty. A rare and desirable philatelic cover cancelled May 29, 1970, at Leningrad, USSR, the last day of the conference. Armstrong traveled to this conference to present a talk and afterwards went to Moscow to meet Premier Alexei Kosygin and was given a VIP tour of space-related sites. Armstrong was only the second U.S. astronaut to visit the Soviet Union (Frank Borman was first, in 1969). The cover is signed by Neil Armstrong, Vladislav Volkov (Soyuz 7, Soyuz 11), Yevgeny Khrunov (Soyuz 5), scientist Richard W. Porter, and Soviet space academic Georgy Petrov. Armstrong would cease signing covers soon after this time period. Excellent, sealed in a numbered archival sleeve. This lot will include a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
